We were treated extremely well and enjoyed our visit very much. Our waiter was called Aaron a Spanish boy and he was very attentive with us. We were in the downstairs part of the restaurant.

6 of us had lunch here last Sunday (27th Nov). 3 of us had Sunday lunch and 3 ordered fish from the cabinet. All meals were good but the Roast Beef was exceptional. The Restaurant was busy with a good atmos and service was friendly and mostly prompt; if I was looking for a criticism the only one really was... More

Remembrance Sunday 2016. Great friendly welcome from front of house staff as we asked if we could pop in for a drink before the water taxi returned at 1.30pm but our experience was ruined by the surly French sounding barman (older Gentleman wearing glasses) I waited patiently at the bar and was totally ignored (the bar was nearly empty) whilst...

We just love coming to this restaurant in Penarth. We prefer the upstairs dining area because it is usually quieter; more intimate. We had a salad to start - choose it and make it yourself from the salad bar, followed by Moules marinière and then a main course of fish. The food was delightful, but the waiter(s) service left a...

Came for Sunday lunch & had a choice from either the Sunday or daily menu. Have to go to the counter to order where the menus are on chalk boards. Even though the restaurant got busy the sevice was very good & did not feel rushed. As the restaurant is on the first floor get a good view over Cardiff... More

Ate here for a birthday meal for my partner on arrival it's very grand with terrace upstairs and down both with views over barrage to Cardiff Bay. A good menu with almost everything you need most on display in large glass fridges so you can choose. Would have liked to have been given a children's menu or offered smaller portion... More

When we first arrived we were a bit surprised that we had to go to the counter to choose our food but once we had done this and the food arrived at our table we were very pleased that we chose this place for my husband's birthday dinner. Between the four of us we had seafood, fish and steaks and... More

Some food good, some not good at all. Especially disappointing as one would think that with such a display and choice of fish, they would get the fish dishes spot on. Two of us had sea bass and it really was no good - firstly it was on the dry and overcooked side but it was the sauce that was... More

I have been coming to the restaurant for over 12 years and this family run business, never fails us. It is located in an outstanding location with amazing views. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food served. I had the lemon Sole for my main and calamari for my main, I have to say the calamari is... More
